In match 16 of Australian T20 League 2021, defending champions Sydney Sixers (3 wins in 4 matches) will be up against Adelaide Strikers, who have only won 1 game in 3 matches so far. There is no doubt that the home side will start as favourites in this contest but with Tom Curran out and Steve OKeefe injured, they will have their task cut out against a talented Strikers side led by the experienced Peter Siddle. The stage is certainly set for an exciting game of T20 cricket in Sydney on Tuesday.
Josh Philippe has to be the first name in your side without any side considering his sensational form in recent games. The Sixers wicketkeeper is currently the top-scorer in the tournament and is coming to this match on the back of playing a match-winning 99* run knock in previous game. James Vince and Jake Weatherald are two batters who should be in your side as they have the ability to play big knocks for their side.
Some top all-rounders will be at display among whom Moises Henriques should be a certain pick. Matthew Short (124 runs) and Hayden Kerr (5 wickets) have also been in good form this season and could get some vital points for your side. With Tom Curran out and Steve OKeefe doubtful for this match, Chris Jordan and Rashid Khan should be the selections among the bowlers, alongside Peter Siddle and Ben Dwarshuis.
